The number of dead possums on the road is a concern to all people.
I often get calls from people who have found an injured possum and is wondering what they can do.
I don’t rescue injured animals but there are networks like WIRES and BARN who do.
The bigger concern is the fact that possums have to roam the streets rather than live in their territory.
What we are seeing is possum showing up on top of cupboards in garages or inside roller doors.
So many people say that as soon as someone close by has chopped down a tree, possums have come into their home.
In Brisbane recently a large date palm tree was cut down and a family of possums moved into the roof of a neighbors house.
The thing to be aware of is that when we take away possum habitat we should be looking to put up possum boxes or at least give them somewhere else to call home.
Do you hear noises in your roof?
